Creamy Corn and Ginger Soup

 A few weeks ago I was inspired by a delicious looking corn and coconut soup recipe on the blog "Choosing Raw".  This Sunday, I finally decided to make my own version...
However, I wanted to give my soup an Asian spin so I added a big chunk of  fresh ginger.
Wow! The combo of ginger, corn and coconut milk tasted incredible!
I ended up using canned corn instead of fresh because I have a ton of it in the pantry. Fresh corn would step this up a notch for sure, but if you want a soup that's really quick to throw together, feel free to use canned. 

Creamy Corn and Ginger Soup
2, 15 oz cans of corn, drained ( or 3 cups fresh or frozen corn )
2 cups of plain almond milk
1 cup coconut milk ( light or full fat )
1 yellow onion diced
2" chopped fresh ginger
1 clove of garlic crushed
2 tsp curry powder ( optional )
1 tsp mild vegetable oil
1.5 tsp sea salt
   chopped herbs like chives or cilantro for garnish
In a large soup pan, saute diced onion in the veggie oil until translucent ( about 5 minutes ). Add crushed garlic and ginger and saute for another 2-3 minutes. Add almond milk, coconut milk, corn, curry ( if using ) and salt. Cook until corn is heated through.
Add soup ( small batches at a time ) to a blender. Blend soup on low and slowly increase speed. Blend until very smooth. Be very careful because hot soup has a tendency to "explode" if blended too quickly in a blender.
Serve soup topped with your favorite Asian herbs.
